Yay! My copy of Sea, Sky, Sand and Street arrived by UPS just now. I’ve had a look through and i’m very pleased with the results. I’ll be posting a review of my Blurb book making experience, and the results i got, in later post, however i thought i’d post some initial thoughts.
First of all the quality is excellent. Better than some photography books i own!
Good print tone (a slight green tint but OK) with deep blacks and plenty of detail in the images. The premium matt paper i opted for looks and feels good, adding that extra weight quality to the book pages. Text is crisp and accurately placed on the page.
The layout and whether it would survive the book printing and trimming process was a slight concern but i had little to worry about. There was a degree of flexibility in the design and the resulting printed version is around 98% true to the screen version.
A more detailed review will be posted on the main photoblog later this week.
